Event Details

We have designed this online seminar as an opportunity for participants to engage with one of our EFMD Programme Accreditation experts. There will be a heavy focus on Q&A sessions, allowing each participant to ask any questions they may have regarding the accreditation process. Following the online seminar, our EFMD Programme Accreditation Senior Advisors will be available for a private one-on-one coaching session, allowing participants to ask specific questions regarding the Datasheet and accreditation process.

You will learn how to:

  • Navigate the key stages of the accreditation processes
  • Interpret and apply the Standards and Criteria
  • Prepare a good Datasheet

This seminar is for you if you are:

  • In the early stages of the process
  • Thinking of accreditation and trying to understand what it takes
  • Seeking an overview of the accreditation process
  • New in your accreditation role

Keep in mind

We will admit a maximum of 25 participants to enable a better experience for you. Registration will close as soon as this number has been reached. A maximum of 4 representatives from the same institution will normally be admitted to each seminar.

Individuals in a consultancy role are not allowed to register.

Participant Preparation for the Online Seminar

The EFMD Programme Accreditation Introductory Seminar will take place online using Zoom. The Zoom link will be sent to registered participants a week before the seminar. To prepare for the seminar, we ask that participants make sure they have a comfortable, good quality headset with a microphone.

We will ask all registered participants to submit one PowerPoint slide or Word document that includes their name, title, affiliation and a maximum of three bullet points about their school. The slides will allow participants to introduce themselves in the segments “ME in a minute”. Please submit the slide/document to Amanda Adams by December 7th.

Along with the PowerPoint slide, we ask that participants submit their initial questions to us before the seminar. We will address these questions along with other questions you may have during the Q&A portion of the seminar. Please submit all initial questions by December 7th to Amanda Adams.

Each participant must be familiar with our core documents before the seminar. The core documents include our EFMD Programme Accreditation Standards & CriteriaEFMD Programme Accreditation Process Manual and EFMD Programme Accreditation Process Manual Annexes.

Each participant is highly encouraged to pre-fill a Datasheet for their institution and potential applicant programme before the seminar. This will allow participants to have a better understanding of what general questions they need to ask our expert during the seminar and later, which more specific questions, for the private coaching session. Please visit the EFMD Accredited Guides & Documents website to download the Datasheet.
